Grigore Leșe – Romania’s most beloved bard – June 26 7 to 9 PM

June 26 concert
“What is singing?… Singing is a necessity. If man doesn’t sing he dies. It is a grace, it is a transcendental custom, it is a chance from God.

My performance represents the axis that connects the image of a profound, ancestral Romania to the present day sensibilities and means of expression. Romania, as I see it and sing it, is a place that, once discovered, has the ability to amaze, enchant, inspire.

The world’s biggest anthropologists and ethnologists all agree that similar elements exist in people’s traditional cultures across the globe; all we have to do is tap into that common ancestral layer of hidden meaning. We will find there a common archetype, the matrix that expands into dance, music, ritual practices, and general philosophies of various nations. I will try to expose through my music the trajectory of life through this archaic perspective.

Through my recital I am hoping to connect Romania with all those present, whatever their nationality or religion, because our story is in fact the story of the world, it is one day in the life of humanity as a whole, where the sun rises, bringing everything to life, then it reaches its peak shining in the skies, only to set once more and prepare for the cycle of life over and over again…”
